Effectively Navigating a Complex World

Contextual Intelligence is about facilitating adaptive and responsive leadership! We all are experiencing an unprecedented pace of change and must navigate and adapt to constantly changing environments. This reality requires a new perspective of leadership, one that includes a holistic view of the context in which we interact and includes flexibility, adaptation, and resilience. Come and learn a new framework where the individual and organization can more effectively navigate the volatility, complexity and ambiguity of their environment.

In this session, we'll explore:

  • Strategies to navigate complexity.
  • How to generate new ideas in a hectic environment.
  • Discerning between what is complicated and what is complex.
